Tucked at the end of a gangway between a Starbucks and a Potbelly on Clark Street, this small but popular shop has been meeting Andersonville's comics-shop needs since 2011. AlleyCat offers the usual wall of new comics and a good selection of trades and graphic novels, along a smallish collection of back issues. Kid-friendly books are well stocked in the "AlleyKitten's Corner." The store doesn't offer much in the way of toys or figures, but the staff is approachable and highly knowledgeable; a recent Saturday-afternoon visit found a staffer being interviewed for the Geekspotting podcast about the month's developments in the Marvel and DC universes, while on another trip a high-school teacher looking for a class-appropriate book for ESL students was quickly steered to solid recommendations. The shop also hosts weekly Magic: The Gathering tournaments, game nights and movie nights.
